This captivating CE offering is specifically designed to further your understanding of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. Geared to enhance your skills in choosing the best pharmacotherapeutic agents for infections, this talk covers a variety of conditions that range from bacterial rhinosinusitis to herpes zoster.

By immersing yourself in this presentation, you will obtain a fuller understanding of the mental and physical health risk factors when prescribing fluoroquinolones and increase your comprehension of varicella vaccines. Explorations into antiviral therapy for influenza are included in this session to help you discern which particular agent works best for each patient.

Included in this presentation are the following topics:

  • Screening for opioid use disorder
  • Treatment approaches to community-acquired pneumonia
  • Differential diagnosis and management options for soft tissue infections
  • Empiric therapy based on anatomical sites and specific pathogens
